Suspend "automation moves with events" ?

I have some bounced parts (audio files) that have been filtered/automation of eq. I wish to replace the bounced parts with a new version of the audio file but want to keep the existing automation of inserts. Can I suspend the automation follows parts temporarily? (I will copy and paste my new bounced parts onto said track in the old parts positions - quite a few of them through the track (10+) but don’t want the existing automation removed.)

I know this is quite easily doable but if someone knows the menu/pref option off the top of their head that would save me a lot of time this evening. Much obliged.

A search reveals:

“try checking “Automation follows events”
in “Preferences” =>“Editing””

Or unchecking as the case may be for my scenario. I will give this a whirl later.
